Who knew butterflies could be so modern? Rachel from Robinson Press created this wedding invitation suite for a couple who were married this past summer. Rachel kept the suite simple with two main pieces – the invitation and RSVP card – and incorporated the couple’s romantic color palette of pink, plum, and gold. So pretty!
From Rachel: Jess and Joe wanted their invitations to embody the essence of summer, so we created this bright and playful butterfly design based on a Viennese Art Nouveau pattern and used a romantic color palette to add richness and depth.
This is a three-color, two piece, wedding invitation suite, plus a custom monogrammed notecard. It is letterpress printed on 100% cotton paper in a natural white heavyweight stock. The envelopes are plum and metallic gold.

I love the juxtaposition of organic elements with a very urban venue in these wedding invitations from designer Christa Alexandra. Created for a wedding at The Brooklyn Winery, the design was inspired by the reclaimed wood walls and decor of the wedding venue. The wedding invitation suite features an organic color palette of soft green, taupe, and brown. Beautiful!
From Christa: I designed and printed this letterpress invitation suite for Kaitlin and Taylor’s wedding at The Brooklyn Winery. Kaitlin was inspired by an organic palette of leaf green, taupe, and brown. The venue, self described as an “urban winery,” boasts a warm ambiance, reclaimed wood walls and locally sourced decor.
We created a sophisticated invitation with an informal feel using pretty typography and pops of green. Staying away from the traditional vineyard vines, we chose to use leaves and thin branches to incorporate some natural elements into the stationery. The entire suite was lovingly hand-printed on my 1918 Chandler & Price letterpress.

I’m completely in love with these bat mitzvah invitations from J at Grey Snail Press! With a fuchsia and gray color palette, the letterpress printed invitations feature J’s signature hand lettering, modern design details, and non-traditional RSVP card. So fun and so modern – everything a bat mitzvah invitation should be!
From J: I worked with Jamie’s mom to create a bright and bold invitation for her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah ceremony and reception. Jamie requested a gray and fuchsia color palette, so we chose envelopes, papers, and ink colors accordingly.
The invitations were letterpress printed by Hounddog Press in fuchsia and light gray ink on bright white Lettra, then mounted on fuchsia backers. Fuchsia envelopes were lined with a gray and white chevron pattern.
RSVP cards were printed on fuchsia card stock in white ink with a simple J logo. They wanted a large blank area for guests to write messages rather than traditional RSVP options.

I’m a big fan of the whimsical illustration of Catherine from Printerette Press – particularly when it comes to birthday party invitations (Catherine created Sophie’s first birthday party invitations last year)! And today Catherine is back with another first birthday party invitation project! Waverley’s adorable invitations feature an ombre effect in tones of peach and pink along with a floral envelope liner. Love!
From Catherine: This is a custom project we recently worked up for an adorable little girl’s first birthday party. The inspiration given to us by her mom – Lesleigh from pearls on a string – was “peachy tones ombre” for the invitation and “soft grandma florals” for the envelope liner. We chose to stay in a peachy/pinkish color palette throughout, but added a touch of brown in the floral envelope liner to give it that “grandma” feel the client was looking for. The final touch was ordering magnets of Waverley herself to add an extra fun element to the overall invitation.

These beautiful wedding invitations from Megan at Ruby the Fox are just perfect for the quintessential modern boho bride. Succulent-inspired details? Check! Beautiful calligraphy? Check! A bright pop of colorful edge painting? Check! Totally gorgeous result? Check and check!
From Megan: This suite was created for a fabulous Los Angeles-based bride for her modern meets boho wedding. She worked with Bash, Please to design her perfect day, and I had the honor of designing her wedding invitations! We started with a fresh palette of mint, coral, kraft, and taupe – and the rest took off from there.
Playing off her love for calligraphy, clean lines and succulents, we came up with a stunning design that was totally representative of her big day. The suite was letterpress printed on luxe cotton stock, with edges painted in a pop of coral. To top it all off, Angelique, Ink graced us with her calligraphy talents for the couple’s names and the gorgeous envelope calligraphy.
